Description 

This bridge was built by Cascade County and the federal government in 1923 for $22,430. It replaced a wooden bridge dating to 1890. This bridge was widened in 1897 to a two lane bridge meaning, two wagons could pass by each other on the bridge.

Gust Probst was the first person to cross the metal truss bridge on Jan. 1, 1924.
